Sometimes one can wake up not knowing that something life-changing is going to happen to them that very day.

That was the case for OpTic Gaming content creator Jack ‘CouRage’ Dunlop, who won an insane amount of money just for winning a single match of Fortnite: Battle Royale.

CouRage was streaming some warm-up matches in Fortnite in preparation of the $500K Summer Skirmish tournament, when he was hit with the most unexpected proposal.

Popular YouTubers ‘MrBeast’ and ‘Miniminter’ had privately messaged him offering to donate $70,000 live on stream should he simply win his next Solos match.

Although there are very few situations more pressure-packed than playing a single match of a battle royale game for that much money, CouRage clutched up for the victory, barely hanging on with just 18 health points.

His reaction, as expected, was of pure, adrenaline-filled excitement and jubilation as he bellowed in shock and disbelief at the fact that he had just become $70K richer.

Shortly afterwards, the donation alerts came through, as Miniminter started things off with a $35,000 bomb right off the bat.

Full of pure shock at this point, CouRage began calling some of his close friends and family to tell them about the insanity he had just experienced. 

He called his mother, his father, and close friend and former colleague Clint ‘Maven’ Evans, jokingly agreeing to pay for tacos that weekend.

An hour-long VOD has been posted showing the incredible scenes, and it can be viewed in its entirety down below.

Popular Twitch streamer ‘TheStockGuy’ was left speechless after receiving 126 lbs of cranberry sauce in the mail from one of his viewers in a hilarious prank.

Twitch is one of the net’s most popular live streaming platforms, and rightfully so; the site is home to a slew of hilarious and shocking moments that happen in real-time, from everything to doors falling on unlucky streamers in the middle of video games to viewers rescuing streamers’ trapped cats.

However, some of these on-stream occurrences are downright strange, and many streamers have received the odd occasional gift from their viewers, including that time when Pokimane received a body pillow with a photo of herself on it.

While streamers having a public P.O. Box to receive gifts from fans is not uncommon, very often the things they receive are; and Twitch streamer TheStockGuy became the subject of a seriously weird present of sorts.

Twitch: Pokimane
Twitch star “Pokimane” has received a slew of strange gifts from fans – one of which was a body pillow with her own face on it.

During an October 6 broadcast, TheStockGuy — who has gained notoriety on the platform for educating his viewers about finances and the stock market — revealed he’d been sent 126 lbs of Ocean Spray brand cranberry sauce.

“What is wrong with you people?” the streamer asked, seeming genuinely baffled by the situation. “Somebody sent me 126 lbs of cranberry sauce! What — where am I supposed to put this? Isn’t there some charity or something this money could go to?”

Although the he appeared to be utterly flummoxed by the viewers’ decision, he decided to make the best of the unexpected prank, stating that he would donate the sauce to his local food bank for the upcoming Thanksgiving holiday.

“I mean — you know what? Joke’s on you!” he continued. “I’m giving this to the local food shelter for thanksgiving, so they don’t have to purchase cranberry sauce! That’s right — we’re making something good out of this!”

It seems that TheStockGuy’s viewers found the scenario to be completely hilarious — and while it certainly is worth a hearty chuckle, it’s good to know that the broadcaster is putting his viewer’s practical joke to good use, in the end.
